Pilz at COMPONENTS SPECIAL TRADE FAIR BY INTERPACK 2017 in Düsseldorf, Hall 18, Stand B16 - Smart, safe packaging!

At this year's "Components Special Trade Fair by Interpack", the automation company Pilz will be focusing on flexible and economical solutions for packaging machines. The key areas will be solutions around the Smart Factory. Also new in Düsseldorf: the electrically activated E-STOP pushbutton PITestop active, which provides safety and productivity in the spirit of Industrie 4.0, particularly in the packaging sector.

Whether you need machines with an elementary function range or interlinked plant and machinery: Pilz offers manufacturers and operators of packaging machines complete solutions for safety and automation. These include universal solutions from the fields of sensor, control and drive technology, plus visualisation.

Packaging à la Industrie 4.0
A modular plant construction is the key to greater flexibility in production: At Components, Pilz will be using a model of the Smart Factory to demonstrate how individualised products can be manufactured in a way that's flexible, cost-efficient and user-friendly. The model is composed of three modules in a network, manufacturing personalised products in an intelligent assembly line.
New to the Smart Factory is the electrically activated E-STOP pushbutton PITestop active. It indicates by illumination whether or not it is active. It can be used to safely activate or deactivate machine and plant sections as required, in accordance with ISO 13850. PITestop active is beneficial for plant and machinery in which plant sections are moved. It enables flexible safety concepts, such as those required primarily in the packaging industry, to be implemented simply. The electrically activated E-STOP pushbutton contributes to greater flexibility and modularisation, even on packaging machines.
With PITestop active, it is no longer necessary to maintain power to the complete plant in order to preserve the emergency stop function, so users can also benefit from reduced energy costs.

Pilz is exhibiting in Hall 18, Stand B16. Further information about Pilz's presence at the exhibition: www.pilz.com/interpack

Under the motto "We automate. Safely." Pilz will be presenting industry solutions, product innovations and services for complete automation solutions at the Hannover Messe from 24 to 28 April 2017.
Key focus areas for Pilz at this year’s Components will be packaging solutions in the context of the smart factory.
